The Story Cafe - Eatery & Bar
We believe that nothing is useless. Therefore, as far as your eyes can see, all the decorations have their own stories and tales, they have been handpicked and gathered from all over BC. We hopes you will feel like you are in a different century and a different time where the arts would thrive and generate amazing stories as you dine and enjoy the antique décor.
Throughout the week we have music nights that are dedicated to showcasing different musical genres and different talented musicians to give you entertainment and give back to the community in our own way.
The Story café invites you to join us and become part of our story.

Awesome service team, fantastic live music and awesome food. What more can I ask for?
Loved the ambiance of the restaurant.
Great menu selection. All good, except background music got a little to loud for conversation. Overall, can't wait to go back.
Just terrific food, had the organic salad and the beef carpaccio
Lovely space .
Definitely will be back
Thanks to Jerome to provide us a wonderful evening,
Super nice staff and the food was delicious. Came here to celebrate my birthday and they gave a complimentary cheesecake!
overall are very good except a little bit losie.I will recommend to my friends.
Such a great place, staff was friendly and attentive, food was great
The Charcuterie board and the pesto prawn pizza were really good. Splurged on the special pumpkin creme brûlée. Great end to the meal.
Great spot for brunch and lunch! Staff been very friendly and prompt! Great date spot!
Really lovely ambience, food and decor. Service was excellent too.
I wouldn’t recommend calamaris. Also i wish they had heavy meal during happy hour. Otherwise the service and the place was goood! Would come again but not during happy hours (3-5pm)
Sat on the enclosed patio. Despite the pouring rain, it was warm, cosy and dry. Unless it is really cold, don't shy away from the outdoor seating option. My wife had the signature risotto, loved it. It is quite rich and filling. I had the duck, cooked perfectly (medium rare) and beautifully presented. Not a huge portion so I helped out with the risotto. We shared the excellent pumpkin creme brulee. Service was friendly and attentive. They were super busy so this was an impressive feat. Great value for such outstanding food.
Was a bit worried making a reservation when I saw from their website that they are short staffed and service might be slow. But the server and host were very efficient and food was served quickly and very good. The only downside is we have to wait a few minutes for our table to be set up despite having a reservation. Otherwise, it didn't disappoint us and we'll be back again. Tip: Better make a reservation as this place gets full most of the time and really busy. Walked-in three times,but no luck.
Great music, delicious food although pricey. A lot of fun regardless.
Hugely recommend! :)
note: They occasionally walk from table to table to ask for donations for the musicians, which could interrupt personal conversations.
Wish there were more vegetarian options as i could only get a salad. But the ambiance and taste were great. Also, the servers were friendly
Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend the Beef Wellington and the Lobster Gnocchi.
Food was delicious and the staff were super friendly and helpful. Great find, definitely plan to go back!
Good food. They might be short staff as it took a bit to get their attention to order and when we got their attention, we were told our server will be with us shortly but we had to wait again.
I expected a fresh brewed iced tea, with fresh lemon slices, not Nestea . I am
Hoping you will expand your menu to
Mini-seafood paella or risotto items, more salads selection like full
Leaf romaine with roasted garlic and shaven Parmesan.
More fish selection like sable fish. Please serve a decent baguette with garlic and butter and Italian parsley when you serve the pasta and mussels with wine. Be generous with your mashed potatoes.
Great good and great service! Love the atmosphere. Can’t wait to come back again
Excellent food and service! Loved my oat latte!
Story Cafe is the best restaurant in Richmond. Outstanding food, friendly service and a great space. Super busy, book ahead! The lobster gnocchi is truly spectacular.
Very good food and a comfortable quirky room at the Story Cafe. Staff are friendly if a tiny bit erratic at times but overall very good. Excellent linguini carbonara and rib eye steak perfectly cooked. Homey ambiance, nice and casual. New favourite place!
The chowder soup is cold. This is not the first time soup is served cold. It should be piping hot, esp in such weather! Frittata out of the oven is hot, even the eggs on the titanic and the scone is cold.......
This is the best choice for good food and service near the airport. Delicious
Superior services and foods.
I had the fried chicken benny which was good and service was great. Will definitely be coming back to try more of the food.
I asked the waiter what re recommended and he suggested the Chicken fried bennys. It was awesome and I highly recommend this if you are going there. Service was great and a great atmosphere.
I decided to order the Beef Wellington which is not often listed or available on a restaurant menu. It was an excellent choice.
Nice repurposing of an older building in an area that seems to be up and coming. |Interesting décor. Great service. Food was very well prepared and presented. All in all an excellent experience.
Very happy that they allow dogs on the patio and the customers are pet-friendly too! Good food, service and helpful staffs. My favourite restaurant now and will come back more often!
Hidden gem. Make reservations to not be disappointed. Food was eclectic and delicious. Service was top notch. Very nice ambiance.
I absolutely LOVE this place! Their food is delicious, the portions are really good, and it’s a cool atmosphere. Order the “Killing Me Softly” chocolate molten lave cake….YUMMMMM!
The food was disappointing. We had the shrimp pesto pizza, the dough tasted raw, the pizza has a red sauce base and only a drizzle of pesto.
The bacon jam with Brie was very small. Maybe two tablespoons of bacon jam , 5 crostinis and the brie was a very very thin slice, therefore you did not even get a taste with each bite.
The service was very slow.
We really enjoyed our dinner at the Story Cafe. All staff was superfriendly and helpful. We had various dishes to share and all of them were delicious. Another huge bonus is the dogfriendly patio. We will definitely come back to another time to enjoy the live music.
Ordered their eggs, they were dry.
Soup was cold. The patty burger tasted like it wasn’t deforest properly:( pretty disappointed as I had quite a bit of expectations
Wonderful time. Very gracious staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home. Quick service, and it was my wife’s birthday which they celebrated with a complementary dessert!
Great little restaurant with friendly nice staff...great service and the ambiance in the evening listening to the live music is what keeps bringing me back. Thurs nights is acoustic pop and Canto music right after. I've enjoyed it each time I've come.
Cafe was short-staffed so had to flag server down several times. Would come back if this issue resolves.
I prefer breakfast here. The dinners seemed a bit too much fine dining attempts. Large pretty plates and smaller portions. Still good food though. And the lemon pepper chicken wings are AMAZING.
